Join Tony Harmer for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding dynamic markers, part of Drawing Simplified Maps in Illustrator.
- [Instructor] In chapter two,…we took a look at static symbols versus dynamic symbols,…noted the differences there,…and we're going to contextualize that in this movie…with some markers.…Now, on this hidden layer…that I have inside of this exercise file,…there are a bunch of different icons.…There's a castle tower there, to indicate heritage,…a shopping bag.…I know you can't see these very well against the background,…but you'll see them in a moment.…A coffee cart, put knife, fork, and spoon, and a book.…
And they've already been turned into symbols.…So what I'm going to do is resize…this knife, fork, and spoon.…And all of those, by the way,…were drawn at the same kind of scale,…and drag it on top of this marker graphic…that I've made here.…I might need to nudge that around just a little bit.…I'm happy with that.…I'll select the two things together,…and my symbols panel is here.…If you don't see yours, by the way,…it's in the window menu.…
And I'm going to click down at the bottom…to create a new symbol.…And we'll call this one marker, like so,…
